Biography

Gregory M. Mundis Jr., MD, is an orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in deformities of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine for pediatric and adult patients. These conditions include scoliosis, kyphosis and sagittal plane deformities. Dr. Mundis has extensive training in minimally invasive spine surgery, traditional reconstructive methods and surgical revision cases. Dr. Mundis has a special interest in research, education and global outreach. He is the co-director of San Diego Spine Fellowship, which annually trains two new spine surgeons. 


He regularly presents his research at national and international physician meetings to help educate surgeons in minimally invasive spine surgery and advanced surgical techniques. His research is focused on minimally invasive reconstruction for scoliosis and the treatment of children with severe deformities. Dr. Mundis is a member of the International Spine Study Group (ISSG), the largest multicenter study group dedicated to research of adult spinal deformities.


Beyond his clinical work, research and education efforts, Dr. Mundis dedicates personal time for several trips each year to underserved areas around the world to provide life-changing spinal surgeries for children as part of his volunteer work with Global Spine Outreach (GSO). Through GSO, he provides complex spinal surgeries for children who otherwise would not have access to modern health care. The volunteer work also allows Dr. Mundis the opportunity to educate and train surgeons in the latest surgical techniques.


Dr. Mundis is frequently joined by his wife and family on these medical missions as a testament to their dedication to serving children in communities with unmet spinal needs. Dr. Mundis says he views his patients as an extension of his family. As a father of four, and the son of a missionary family, Dr. Mundis believes that every patient encounter matters and that all deserve to have their story heard.
